Bale density.

Our goal is to maximize your trips across the field and the quality of the baled crop. VARIANT round balers have unmatched bale density in all crops, from dry hay to wet baleage to dusty straw, these machines get the crop packed tightly. More material in one bale equals fewer bales to handle, less fuel, less labor, less net wrap, and less depreciation used per year. Studies have also shown that dense baleage preserves crop nutrients longer when wrapped with high-quality silage film. Less feed loss, better feed-to-gain, and more money in your pocket are just some benefits of dense bales from the VARIANT round baler.


Crop flow.

Reliability and performance are two things that shouldn't be questionable when talking about the baler's crop flow. VARIANT round balers are built to handle all types of crops from sticky fescue to delicate alfalfa. The pickup, crop guard, and rotor are all positioned close together for seamless hand-off of the crop and to limit the risk of plugging. Even in high volume crops, the incoming material can be seen from the operator's seat.


Tying cycle.

Round baling systems require the machine to stop briefly while the bale is wrapped or tied. To limit downtime spent wrapping the bale, a high belt speed of 9.8ft/sec (3 m/s) ensures an extremely quick cycle time. Additionally, bale tying is started automatically when the set bale diameter is reached.
